Big Eyes

11 yrs 106 minutes 2014 7.0

Tim Burton's Big Eyes is based on a true story. In the 1950s Walter Keane strives to succeed as an artist. In San Francisco he meets the newly divorced Margaret. They marry shortly thereafter, but Walter's success doesn’t arrive. Not until the phenomenal success of the Big eyes paintings, the famous paintings of mostly children with oversized eyes, that becomes a sensation all over the world. The Keanes couple soon create an empire of big-eyed art. The revelation that these popular portraits were not painted by Walter at all, but by Margaret, strikes down like a bomb in the art world... "Tim Burton and excellent actors skillfully tell a strange true story", Jens Peterson writes in Aftonbladet, rating the film 4 out of 5.
